Lithuanian architects proved that while building a new bus station it is not at all necessary to cut down trees growing on the designated plot. All works can be carried out in harmony with nature.
The Attraction of a Small Town
Vilkaviškis (Vyškovyškis) is a small Lithuanian town near the Kaliningrad region. It has a population of about 10,000 and one building stands out. It is a newly built, modern bus station.
Station In the Greens
The building was built on a triangular-shaped plot. It has an area of about 4 m² and one thing stands out. During the construction the surrounding trees were not cut down. What is more, they became a part of the station. It gives the impression that the grey and white color building is in the middle of the forest.

The Building in the Evening
When constructing this new station, local authorities were inspired to also create new jobs for local people. Another important issue was ecology and care for nature. No trees were harmed during the construction. 😉 The building houses services and commercial premises. Additionally, it has rooms where concerts, performances and various cultural events can take place.
Trees Integrated Into the Body of the Station
Bus Station and a Park, All in One
The Lithuanian facility is a bus station and park in one. It has become quite an attraction and a social meeting place. In addition, solar panels were placed on the roof, making the station is a self-sufficient energy building. Job well done, we must say!
